April 3 – Eric Gordon, Deron Williams, Anthony Davis

April 4 - Robert Covington, Nikola Vucevic, DeAndre Jordan

April 5 - DeAndre Jordan

Eric Gordon (New Orleans - SG) $5.8K – March 29 – Minnesota is giving up the 8th most fantasy points against opposing shooting guards.  He had over 30 fantasy points against Minnesota when he last faced them. 

April 3 – Gordon goes up against Sacramento again.  Remember, dead last against opposing shooting guards.

Deandre Jordan (LA Clippers - C) $8.3K - March 29 - On Friday night against Philadelphia, Jordan managed 20 rebounds, 17 baskets and 2 steals that helped him to eclipse 45 fantasy points.  Previously against the Knicks, Jordan flirted with 40 fantasy points thanks a great deal to his five blocks and a steal.  Jordan only needs around 33 fantasy points to make value at the current price. Next up is a Boston team that ranks 21st against centers.  He tallied over 50 fantasy points the last time against the Celtics.

April 4  - Denver is looming and they give up the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing centers.  Despite only making 7 baskets, Jordan managed to reach over 35 fantasy points on rebounds, steals and blocks.

April 5 – He made close to target using the current price his last time facing the Lakers but pay close attention that his price does not go up heading into this game. 

fantasy points against the Clippers in the previous matchup.

Brook Lopez (Brooklyn - C) $6.4K - March 29 – You’ll want to play him again on the 29th simply because he had 14 rebounds against the Lakers last time, not to mention 22 baskets.

Deron Williams (Brooklyn - PG) $5.6K- March 29 – Don’t look now but Brooklyn has been playing some pretty good basketball of late, winning 6 of their last 10.  Williams has contributed to that effort.  In three of his last four he managed to make or exceed value with 27 or more fantasy points.   The Lakers are especially exposed when it comes to defending the point guard position.  Last time they allowed Williams to walk away with 15 assists.  He tacked on 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block and 12 baskets to go over 40 fantasy points.

April 3 – Williams goes up against a Raptors team that has allowed the 11th most fantasy points to opposing point guards.  Coming off the bench the last time facing Toronto, Williams had 11 baskets, 6 assists and 3 rebounds.  As a starter, playing well of late, it’s easy to see how Williams could make value here.

Al Horford (Atlanta - C) $6.9K – March 29 - He’ll face a Suns team that he managed to scrape together over 75 fantasy points against. 

April 1 – Dallas is another team that has struggled against opposing point guards and another team Westbrook has had little trouble going over 50 fantasy points against. 

Enes Kanter (Oklahoma City - C) $5.8K – March 29 - Kanter nearly made value the last time he faced off against Phoenix and this go around he’ll be picking up some of the slack due to a number of players sitting out.

Anthony Davis (New Orleans - PF) $11.2K March 29 – New Orleans is trying desperately to stay in the hunt for a Playoff spot in the competitive West.   Last time against Minnesota he had better than 42 fantasy points.  He’ll need around 45 here.

allowed the 12th most fantasy points to opposing power forwards this season.

April 3 – The Kings have allowed the 12th most fantasy points to opposing power forwards this season.  Davis scorched them last time with over 50 fantasy points.

Marcin Gortat (Washington - C) $6K - March 29 – Against Charlotte, Gortat managed to earn over 45 fantasy points despite just scoring 8 baskets.  Oddly enough, the prior game versus Indiana Gortat scored 16 baskets but had a reduction in other areas.  Still, Gortat managed to make value.  He went just over 20 fantasy points the last time meeting Houston but the Rockets have struggled recently against opposing centers. 

Jonas Valenciunas (Toronto - C) $5.2K - April 1 – For the reason cited above related to Minnesota.  He puled off over 30 fantasy points against the T-Wolves last time facing them. 

DeMar DeRozan (Toronto - SG) $7.4K – April 1 – DeRozan hit nearly 40 fantasy points against Minnesota last time.  This one is on the road making a blowout a little less likely especially considering the last matchup in this series was won by only five points. 

Goran Dragic (Miami - PG) $7K – April 2 – Cleveland has struggled against shooting guards.  The injury-riddled Heat will require Dragic to see more minutes.  He tallied up over 40 fantasy points versus the Cavs last time facing them. 

DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento - C) $10K – April 1 – Keep an eye on Cousins this day.  Houston has struggled against opposing centers of late.

Robert Covington (Philadelphia - PF) – April 4 – $4.5K came off the bench March 25 to score 25 baskets, 6 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 block.  That’s flirting with 40 fantasy points in just 29 minutes.  Covington started the night before against Sacramento and scored 21 baskets, 3 rebounds, 1 each of an assist, block and steal.   Charlotte on April 4 has had trouble with power forwards of late.  He flirted with 40 fantasy points the last time going up against the Hornets.
